These mark schemes are published as an aid to teachers and students, to indicate the requirements
of the examination. They show the basis on which Examiners were initially instructed to award marks.
They do not indicate the details of the discussions that took place at an Examiners’ meeting before
marking began. Any substantial changes to the mark scheme that arose from these discussions will
be recorded in the published Report on the Examination.
All Examiners are instructed that alternative correct answers and unexpected approaches in

Mark schemes must be read in conjunction with the question papers and the Report on the
CIE will not enter into discussion or correspondence in connection with these mark schemes.
CIE is publishing the mark schemes for the June 2004 question papers for most IGCSE and GCE
Advanced Level syllabuses.
